A Year With the Mystics: Interview with Kathryn Jean Lopez

Danielle Bean

This week my guest is Kathryn Jean Lopez, a senior fellow at the National Review Institute and author of many books, including her most recent, A Year With the Mystics: Visionary Wisdom for Daily Living.

Kathryn shares how she came to write this inspirational, page-a-day spiritual resource, and the ways in which her own faith life was enriched by her work on the book. She also discusses the idea of mysticism itself, what that means, and the ways in which we are all called to nurture our relationship with God every day. 

You can follow Kathryn Jean Lopez on Twitter and check out her work at National Review.

Snippet from the Show

When you wake up in the morning, make the Sign of the Cross and thank God for being alive. Even that small thing can make a difference in your day.
